Librivox recording of My Man Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse.
Read by Mark Nelson
Bertram Wooster is an English gentleman living in New York, who seems to get himself into all sorts of jams. It's up to his manservant Jeeves to come up with the plan to save the day from unpleasant houseguests, stingy uncles, broken hearts, and hard-partying aunts.

Entertaining - book & reader
Enjoyed these stories - mostly because of the reader. I'm one of those listeners that however much I'm interested in the story, if the reader is bad - forget it! Mark Nelson does a wonderful job. And, BTW, I've always pronounced "Wodehouse" like "ode" with a 'W' in front of it.

Before he even began the book, he mispronounced ‘Wodehouse’! A few sentences in, that American accent was unacceptable. Maybe I should just read it aloud to myself in my charming Appalachian accent.

Only stories 1 to 3 involve Wooster and Jeeves,

Amazing that he can do such a good Bertie with an American accent.
Seriously, Mark's read of this is great, and the work is a comedy classic.

Great book, great recording if you don't mind the accent
The Jeeves stories are classics and terribly funny. I adore Mark Nelson's recordings of them. His accent is American, but his tone of amiable naivety is perfect for Bertie Wooster's narration.

Jeeves is an extremely intelligent man who happens also to work as a butler for a, shall we say, not quite as bright young man. The misadventures they get into are a riot, along with the ingenious solutions Jeeves comes up with to get them out. This will be a new favorite. Enjoy!
